Lumley Castle Hotel s 73 luxurious en-suite bedrooms are all individually designed and situated within the Castle and its adjoining Courtyard and Courtyard Mews. A magnificent monument to a bygone age now converted into a unique 4 star Hotel. Situated in its own grounds close to junction 63 on the A1M overlooking Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground and the river Wear. Lumley Castle dates back over 600 years to the 13th Century. The Black Knight restaurant is set deep within the Castle and enjoys an excellent reputation locally and the Library bar is atmospheric and comfortable. Whilst a favourite for leisure guests the Hotels quiet yet accessible location close to Durham (7 miles) Newcastle-upon-Tyne (11 miles) and Sunderland (12 miles) together with free WiFi free parking and a range of meeting and event rooms make this a sensible overnight choice for both the business and leisure Guest.
